Farmstead Golf & Country Club - Valleyview/Lakeview Course
The Valleyview nine is the most difficult course at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately one hour from New York City. Small greens, tree-lined fairways, hilly terrain and out of bounds on seven of nine holes are among the reasons the Valleyview nine is a test. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1979.

Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.
Farmstead is always in great shape. From tee box to green this has always been one of my favorite places to play. Go and see for yourself and you'll know what I mean.
Frankly the last 2 times I played here I was not a fan. The starter is beyond rude. Both times he started me and my group at least 10 min late from the tee time. They also this last time oversold public slots on top of an outing. I started had a 2:40 tee time (so really started at 2:50) and we never finished the 17th or 18th holes. 5 hours and to not finish all while having to wait excessively after every stroke is ridiculous! The starter needs to be fired because he has no clue how to stagger people properly and the rangers need to learn how to move people along who are holding up the line. Much rather pay a bit more and play Skyview at this point!
It rained a lot today, so the course conditions are bad
This is a golf course I always want to come back to
To the staff who found the lost cell phone
Little over 24 hours after rain from Ida. Started on Club side and after first hole, no course wetness issues. Played Valley on back nine and as expected with a valley, very wet on several holes.
Even with that wetness, we had a great time on a great course. Weather was beautiful and the course was green everywhere. No pace of play issues to speak of.
Play the club and then the valley. I know now why the valley is always available because it’s very difficult and very challenging. We will be playing here again
Always great shape greens smooth and beautiful couldn’t see first 2 holes heavy fog lol but still played highly recommend this course
Not worth the hike
This course is tucked in a distant corner of NJ…same vicinity as Skyview and Berkshire Valley. We played club+valley and Course quality and layout is that of a typical county course anywhere in NJ. Greens are in mediocre condition and carts are run down to the extent they don’t make you feel confident while riding. Go to the other two courses which are truly exceptional.
